a fat hernia is not the same as a bowel hernia.
a true hernia which would need surgery is when there is weakness and loops of bowels push through the inguinal weakness and can end up with loops of bowel in your scrotum
you don't need more inguinal hernia surgery.
sometimes after inguinal hernia surgery, you can have fat in the inguinal canal
yes, prior inguinal hernia surgery can cause scar tissue and pain in the area.
you can ask for referral for physical therapy to learn stretching and strenghtening exercises you can do to help you increase flexibility of your inguinal area and improve strength there.
weight loss surgery could help you loose weight
a 5% lidocaine patch there could help decrease pain.
you can also try an arnica cream like Traumeel on the area to see if that helps.
